The site consists of a platform mound and associated village area with middens covering an area roughly 400 feet (120 m) by 200 feet (61 m). The site originally had a walled ceremonial structure 20 feet (6.1 m) to 30 feet (9.1 m) in diameter. This structure was burned and subsequently covered with dirt. A mound, constructed in two stages very near each other chronologically, was built over top of the structure. The rectangular mound now measures 14 feet (4.3 m) in height, with the base being 160 feet (49 m) by 190 feet (58 m), and the summit 60 feet (18 m) by 70 feet (21 m). Excavations at the site have produced charcoal from beneath the mound which dates to 1020–1260 CE, and pottery recovered from the midden places the occupation of the site to the Late Coles Creek period.
